When We are Overwhelmed

Shootings. The murder of Gabby Petito. Natural diasters. Global terrorism.

I have been overwhelmed with how much pain is in this world, and have felt so ovewhelmed that I didn’t know what to write about… but I thought it would be best to just be honest.

I’m tired of writing about tragedies, yet that is what this blog has been based upon. I would be remiss if I didn’t speak about these things.

As I sit here typing, a Bible verse comes to mind:

“When I am afraid, I will trust in You.”

(Psalm 56:3)

When I am overwhelmed, I can come to my Savior, and recieve the rest and rejuvination I so desperately need. And that is what I encourage all of you to do today, as well. Amidst all the bad news, we have a God who has Good News for us: He sent His Son to die for our sins, so that those who believe could live with Him for eternity.

We have a refuge in this battle called life. And when we feel overwhelmed, we can run to Him.

Have a beautiful day.

In Christ,

Video – Afghanistan: What is Happening to Christians?

Friends and Followers,

I came across this video and I thought I’d be remiss not to put it on here. Whwile many are going through persecution, there are MANY Afghani people who are coming to Jesus. Prayer requests start at 18:20-ish.

Thank you for watching!

In Christ,

Ending Child Sacrifice: An Interview

I watched this young woman’s video about how she is an activist, fighting for the end of child sacrifices.

I cannot imagine a world where this happens, but sadly, it’s alive and well in Uganda. Please pray with me for these children, that they would be kept safe, and that child sacrifice would end. Most of all, please pray with me for the salvation of all of these witchdoctors and other such people!

With Love in Christ,

I Think I Waited (A Poem)

People gathered together in Nigeria.

I think I waited for you.
Waited to hear news full of hope–
news about redemption,
about freedom.

The news rung out in headlines:
Around 100 kidnapped women and children rescued in Nigeria.”
A win! A victory! A glimpse
at the work of God, whose might and compassion
No one can fathom.

Let’s dance. Let’s hug. Let’s celebrate
whenever freedom and truth ring out.
Life is too short not to.

At the same time,
let’s remember…
remember those
still hugging pillows at night,
tears in their eyes as they
hold their loved ones in their hearts.

Let us never forget the pain,
the anguish,
the waiting
that happened
all so that
these people
could be free
once again.

While we must celebrate every victory, we cannot lose sight of the huge epidemic of kidnappings happening in Nigeria over the past couple of months. Many kidnappers are bandits, holding people captive for ransom. While these captives were reportedly released without a ransom being met, others have not been so lucky, and spend another day in capitivity.

Please continue to pray:

  • For these people held captive.
  • For their families and loved ones, as they wait for their loved ones to be released.
  • That nearby Christians would help those in need.

    Please also think of giving to those nonprofits that work directly with Nigeria. Thank you.
